Result

To give confidence back to people who rightly have concerns about government abuse of their data, by restricting its use to within clearly defined public guidelines, by restricting retention to clearly defined time periods, and by ensuring the holders and users of your data are clearly separated.

Proposal/Method

Create a new body that operates on judicial lines to maintain a necessary separation from government interference and ‘mission creep’.

Restrict access to the data to those who protect us.

Restrict the use of the data to serious crime or threat.

Restrict the time your data is searchable and kept.

Restrict ‘general trawling’ to algorithmic searches.

All specific searches will require prior authorisation and will be logged.
